Awesome views! Go early - it gets hot.
An SB classic, can't go wrong here. Usually crowded though.
great view. dusty. hot. recommend going early in the morning or late evening. took us 37 min to reach the top.
Great overlook hike for visitors, Not too strenuous, but often very crowded.
Definitely a workout. Did it while wearing my 25lb toddler on my back so the "up" to Inspiration Point hurt, yikes! Careful with the lose rocks, hubby rolled ankle on way down. So happy when it was over! The view at the top though... So worth it!
